1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That style boot but not in cordovan shell, in walnut calf leather. I sent emails to every outlet store with no luck on any size shell. But I think it was your picture a few weeks back that made me want those boots... I'll have to see how the calf is. I know it's not shell, but for $150, worth a shot. I can probably recoup my money if I don't like...

    I purchased them from AE back in mid Dec. They were $575 then. I think you can still get them but they are now priced at $675 on the AE site. The walnut color is beautiful in person and it's a little darker than what's pictured. These pics were taken on my iPhone and there are some other "real life" pic of these (and Strands in Walnut Cordovan) on the AE thread.

    Today is a nasty, wet day in Sydney town; perfect day to break out my new Ultimate Indys which have just arrived from Leather Soul. I had mine on order since July but it was worth the wait.

    Have you tried Alden in DC. In December I bought a Cap Toe Boot from them on the Grant Last with a comando sole, in Cigar. Perhaps they also carry #8 in the same boot.

    Silly question, but when do you guys replace your Aldens with leather soles? Do you wait until holes start forming?

    you can also buy a non-commando pair of boots, and then have your cobbler add a vibram sole. i just picked up a pair of brown longwings from the cobbler, only set me back $40 to have the vibram sole put on.

    would like to share my favorite whiskey PTB I wore yesterday. After a few wears, I notice a darker shade of line going across the toe on my right pair. It doesn't bother me much but is there a way to make the color more even? I try to think that it's unique for my shoes.
